Great trip!

Hamish very informative abt history, wildlife, ecosystems,and geology. Staff pleasant and helpful. We had a nice, calm, sunny afternoon so that was fortuitous. Catamaran very modern and felt safe. We saw lots of wildlife and highlights were many dolphins feeding and a fur sea pup suckling from its mother. We would recommend this trip to others. Ps: Sorry dont agree with the source of iron theory.
